At home both in the city and the mountains, the new Evoque joins the Range Rover family with a choice of new hybrid engines. Building on the original’s instantly-recognisable design, the new Range Rover Evoque is a sophisticated evolution of the distinctive coupé-like silhouette, typified by its distinctive fast roofline and rising waist that identify the Range Rover family. “When Range Rover Evoque made its debut back in 2010, it transformed the world of compact SUVs and the new model is set to continue that remarkable journey. This characterful vehicle combines refinement and fun to create that all important emotional reaction that will turn heads and make people smile”, said Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Officer.
Building on the original’s instantly-recognisable design, the new Range Rover Evoque is a sophisticated evolution of the distinctive coupé-like silhouette, typified by its distinctive fast roofline and rising waist that identify the Range Rover family. The volume and proportions are amplified by its pronounced shoulders and powerful wheelarches that, alongside 21-inch wheels, combine to create a strong and dynamic attitude. The introduction of jewel-like elements such as super-slim Matrix LED headlamps provide a more sophisticated front and rear lamp graphic. Flush door handles add to the smooth, sculpted aesthetic, while sweeping directional indicators create a purposeful signature.
Stretching across the rear of the vehicle is a striking black accent that creates a sense of visual width, while the precise reduction of exterior panel gaps demonstrates the level of craftsmanship Land Rover’s designers and engineers have worked to achieve. “Customers love the compact proportions of Evoque so we have kept the overall dimensions very similar to the original, but we have lengthened the wheelbase to make Evoque more practical. Our approach has optimised the proportions to elevate the new Evoque’s unique personality. The new Evoque is a true Range Rover, highly sophisticated with a unique and striking presence”, said Massimo Frascella, Exterior Design Director, Land Rover.
The unbroken horizontal architecture of the interior emphasises a feeling of width and space that, alongside a more steeply raked instrument panel, gives the interior a very sophisticated feel. The luxury cabin has a greater focus on usability and intuitive technologies. The two screens and capacitive switches of the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system are the focal point of the interior environment. The beautiful clean design neatly integrates touchscreen technology with simple-to-use rotary dials.
